Emerging communication technologies allow to reconfigure the physical network topology at runtime, enabling demand-aware networks (DANs): networks whose topology is optimized toward the workload they serve. However, today, only little is known about the fundamental algorithmic problems underlying the design of such demand-aware networks. This paper presents the first bounded-degree, demand-aware network, ct-DAN, which minimizes both congestion and route lengths. The designed network is provably (asymptotically) optimal in each dimension individually: we show that there do not exist any bounded-degree networks providing shorter routes (independently of the load), nor do there exist networks providing lower loads (independently of the route lengths). The main building block of the designed ct-DAN networks are ego-trees: communication sources arrange their communication partners in an optimal tree, individually. While the union of these ego-trees forms the basic structure of cl-DANs, further techniques are presented to ensure bounded degrees (for scalability).
